of the cold war. tomorrow, secretary of state john kerry is set to go to kiev where the crisis began. that's where we saw the deadly protests. the latest action is in crimea, a region along the black sea. strategically important and socially as well. it is important to russia because the russian navy has a base there. a warm water port here to the black sea. russian officials say they're trying to protect their citizens in the region, which is dubious to hear from many analysts. secretary of state called that a trumped up excuse. we have team fox coverage. wendell is live with reaction from the white house. first, let's get to eric shawn at the united nations. we're expecting a meeting to happen within the hour. right? >> yes, that meeting of the emergency meeting of the security council, 30 minutes from now here at the u.n. the third time the security council diplomats have gathered during the crisis. russia has called for the meeting so we'll have to see the implications of that. perhaps if it had to do with the supposed deadline. there's -- the ukrainian ambassador tells us there is a t

grab continues and to the rescue, john kerry is going to head over there today to tell them to stop it. good luck. >> he's going over to kiev, the capital, which is okay right now. but this peninsula of crimea has been an area which putin said the russian-speaking people there have asked us to come in. their security was jeopardized we had no choice. we had to respond. putin did make one call. that was to china. he explained himself to china, had no interest in heeding the president of the united states who told him on friday don't go in there. europe was convinced putin wouldn't do this in defiance of the other g-7 countries. instead he did it and everyone is scratching their heads saying how did we miss this? >> despite increased efforts at reenforcement in crimea, kerry is going over, set to have discussions there. but he used bold words over the weekend, insisting that despite putin's actions, he's operating from a position of weakness. take a listen. >> let me make it clear. president putin is not operating from a place of strength here. president putin is using force in a complet

of history on this. >> reporter: overnight secretary of state john kerry traveled to ukraine in a show of support, but there's growing worry that the people of ukraine may try to stop putin touching off a full-scale war. the russian military would likely crush the ukrainian forces. russia has 845,000 troops. ukraine, just 130,000. but european foreign ministers are warning russia. >> i hope very much that even at this stage the government of russia will see that it is in nobody's interests to continue to intervene in ukraine's affairs. >> reporter: so far president putin refuses to back down. this crisis has rocked global financial markets. u.s. stocks were down sharply yesterday. the biggest impact, on ukrainian and russian markets. john and marci. >> tahman bradley live in washington, thank you. >>> all right. well, back here at home, it is a slippery morning commute for millions of americans slammed by a nasty winter storm. >> now that the snow has moved out to sea, bone-chilling cold is settling in bringing subzero and single digit temperatures from the midwest to the east coast. t
of the midon, the crisis in the ukraine has changed its face. it hasn't dissipated. and today secretary kerry was greeted in kiev by ukrainians pleading for the continued support of the united states. and so having been so clear voiced in our support of the ukrainian people thus far since the tproe tests began last november, now is the moment when republicans and democrats should stand united in this congress so years from now when a group assembles in kiev marking the anniversary of this grave crisis they will celebrate ukraine's political sovereignty and economic rebirth with more chance of thanks to the united states. so, in what shape should this support come? first, we need to stand together in the next week to deliver serious financial assistance to ukrainian economy that is weak and is growing weaker as this crisis persists. a $1 billion aid package is a good start, but our real work must happen within the structures of the i.m.f., which can provide the potentially tens of billions of dollars necessary to fully right the ukrainian economic ship. and while ukraine does need to undergo e

. secretary kerry and i and the acting foreign minister of ukraine will be in paris tomorrow. there is an opportunity for us to have consultations under the budapest memorandum. that is the technical answer. that is what it provides for. further to the point of the secretary's comments, the u.k. andived a limited supply exposure to consequences for the rest of europe. what do you do about ensuring the security of the supplies so does not end up limiting our ability to take actions against russians? with the gentleman is raising is very important but it is more of a medium to longer-term issue. there are important things we're doing now to a different side -- diversify energy supplies in europe. one of them was the new pipeline which we inaugurated the construction of in december but that will take several years to construct. although this is a medium to long term issue, i think what has just happened will be a sharp reminder to everyone in europe that it is an important issue. dealing with it is going to become one of the important foreign-policy security issues over the next
state john kerry urged all parties not to inflame the situation. >> we urge all parties, that includes the new interim technical government, rightists, oppositionists, others, anybody in the streets that are arm, we urge all parties to avoid all steps that could be misinterpreted or lead to miscalculation or do anything to work, to bring peace and stability, and peaceful transition within the governing process of ukraine. >> the white house is also keeping a close eye on the situation in ukraine. >> we're not going to speculate about what we might do if something might happen. we're going to focus on the kinds of communication we're having right now, and focus on the international 1969 to assist ukraine. >> as the reportedly russian-backed soldiers took up their positions in crimea, former ukrainian president viktor yanukovych, was holding a news conference in southern russia. he insists he is still president of the country. >> i repeat it over again. i'm the elected president of ukraine, and i remain the legitimate president of ukraine. >> philty nery joins us live, and the country is
kerry is there to try to show support. putin is scared of democracy on his borders. >> the question -- >> using his assets. >> jeffrey, would putin have made this move, say, in 2004, 2005 with george w. bush president in 2004 and 2005? would he believe he could move with impunity the way he did against bush? >> it's not a -- >> hold on. i got to clear this up for everybody else so this isn't a bush versus obama deal. george bush was exhausted in 2008 and putin made the calculated move that after seven years of war, he wasn't going to step on the gas and get involved in something like that. jeffrey, the question i'm asking. >> let me answer it by analogy. in 2003, when the u.s. invaded iraq, the iranians froze their nuclear program because they thought they were next. 2004 and five they saw america get bogged down in iraq because of terrible planning, among other things, and decided to restart and walked away from the nuclear negotiations. there is a demonstration effect we are talking about and right now, if you're a putin or you're a an assad, you do say, look, america is exhausted
that secretary kerry would like and how, the so-called modern view, with the balance of power was a thing of the past and we only saw in the 19th century. that's not how they view the world, and it leads me to play this is something we should be recognizing as well. i leave you with this. the real question is, we will be going through a specific measures about things that should be done here and we will discuss that in response to the question, i believe some of the details for that but i will leave you with two thoughts. the short run to me is not as important as the long run. the long run i think we need to restart rebuilding our strategic position, signal that american retrenchment is over. this will go a long way to signaling to russia and to china and other countries that is long grip and american power is going to be reversed. and the second thing we have to start thinking carefully about is we need to stop thinking of military power as a metaphor for military intervention. we used to understand very well that the deterrent force of military power, today much of that has been lost p
edge and bank of america. >> john kerry wrapping up a phone call with russians' foreign ministers discussing the movement in ukraine. ukraine accused moscow of taking control of two airports. but john kerry said they told him they have no move of taking control. peter brooks is here and sounds like wise advice, never say never, why does it apply to this situation with russia? >> the fact is that russia has significant interest in the ukraine. i think the russian war games could be turning into an invasion of war games if they go the right way. it is unlikely. there are ten million russians in ukraine, about 10% of the population, or the russian citizens in the eastern part, they could do something. remember in 2008, russia still has armed troops in a place there so they could do something about this. and russia could take military action. >> and peter, on the ambassador bolton who worked under the bush administration, has been critical for them not taking a stronger line in 2008 when that happened and russia went into georgia. how do we not repeat the same mistake? we would meet
